Title: Cowboy Player
Series: Cowboy Cocktail #3
Author: Mia Hopkins
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: 28 June 2016

For eight years, Melody Santos played the game of love and lost—big time. Now she’s back in her tiny hometown looking after her younger sister, making ends meet with an assortment of odd jobs. When her childhood best friend hires her to help him sell his family’s grass-fed beef, the last thing she anticipates is falling in lust with the legendary, brown-eyed player.

To put his family’s cattle ranch back in the black, Clark MacKinnon has his sights set on big contracts—gourmet chefs and restaurateurs. If that means long hours traveling from farmer’s market to farmer’s market, Clark doesn’t mind. Particularly since his new assistant is his childhood crush, all grown up and sexy as hell.  

One night in bed leaves them breathless and hungry for more. But when his love-’em-and-leave-’em reputation collides with her trust issues, Clark and Melody must face the truth about what they’ve become: not friends, not lovers, but players in a game that’s impossible to win.

Warning: Contains filthy banter, raunchy sex, excessive Johnny Cash references, and hundreds of pounds of raw beef.

“I know you don’t do relationships,” Melody said softly.
“I would try it. For you.”
“You don’t want to get tangled up with me,” she said, shaking her head. “I have serious trust issues. I’m poison.”
“Jesus, stop it.”
Fear, real and cold, cut through the warmth swirling in her chest. She’d never asked a man to sleep with her before. “I don’t want to lose you as a friend,” she said slowly. “But tonight, I can’t help wanting…” She trailed off, unable to find the words.
They were quiet for a long time.

When he finally spoke, Clark’s voice was deep and steady. “I think I know what you want, because I want it too.” He stroked her hair and kissed her temple, the exact same place he’d kissed when he first invited her down this rabbit hole. “One last night together. Right?”
She gasped softly, relishing the sensation of his lips on her bare skin. Pleasure spiked in her brain like a drug.
“One last night together,” she repeated. “Then we leave this part of us behind. It stays here and we move on. What do you think?”
He was quiet for a moment. He stroked her lower back, edging lower and lower with each languid sweep. “If this is going to be the last time I’m going to make love to you,” he whispered against her neck, “I’m going to give you everything I’ve got. Are you ready for that?”
The sultry promise in his voice sharpened her senses. She was more than ready.
“Yes,” she whispered.

Cowboy Player is the third book in the Cowboy Cocktail series of erotic novellas which features the MacKinnon brothers. This is Clark MacKinnon and Melody’s story. Each can be read as a standalone.

This was a short and extremely sexy story of best friends becoming lovers, one of my favourite tropes in romance.

Melody has returned back to her home town of Oleander after eight years away. She is now firmly back in the community and establishing her friendship with Clark by working for him. However the close proximity is bringing forward different emotions of how she is feeling about her best friend but then on a night out she discovers he is feeling the same way too.

The pair quickly agree to let these new feelings of passion for each other to be unleashed and oh my how hot it got between them. As in all good romances though there is always that bit of hesitation, a bit of angst to hinder the ride to a sweet HEA and in this case it is Melody’s trust issues due to her past relationship and Clark’s reputation with the ladies.

This book is my favourite in the series and I loved how this author really builds up the passionate intensity and chemistry between the two lovers. She capitalises on all the senses by describing in detail of the feelings, the touch, the smells but most of all the sounds of sex. A lot of authors miss out this key sense of sound as this is one of the most alluring parts of a great hot sex scene. It was sensationally steamy!

If you are looking for a quick, hot sexy but romantic read of best friends becoming lovers and more then this is one I would recommend. Four and a half stars.

New Erotica Romance | Deep In You (Phoenix #1) by David S Scott | #NEW #Erotica @givemebooksblog @davidscottauth

Title: Deep in You
Series: The Phoenix Series #1
Author: David S. Scott
Genre: Erotica Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2016


My name is Alexander Phoenix. You’ve probably heard of me, most people have. I’ve won numerous awards and medals all over the world, including the last two Olympics Games. Outside gymnastics, I’m untamable. Many have tried, none have succeeded. They’ve called me a playboy, a philanderer …

Until a chance meeting in a bar with her almost proves to be a disaster for both of us. She’s hot, fascinating and, despite the fact that she poses a risk to me because she’s a tabloid reporter, I can’t help but feel drawn to her.

What are her secrets? Who wants to hurt her?

I’ve never shied away from challenges. Why should I start now?

I swooped down and kissed her, cutting her off.

I knew what she’d seen, what they’d all seen. I didn’t want to talk about
gymnastics now. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. I like being able to control my body to do these things, enjoy the admiration I get. It just wasn’t my focus here in the club. My interest was only in the beautiful woman in front of me. I captured her mouth with mine, claiming her. She was delicious; sweet with a slight taste of martini. My tongue caressed hers, danced with hers. My pulse increased to dangerous levels as she moaned and matched me stroke for stroke. I retreated slightly before driving into her again, our mouths a mimicry of what I wanted to do to her with my body. Everything else fell away–the club, the people pressing into us from all sides, the noise, all of it. It was just me and her, doing positively indecent things, uncaring of who saw us. Unable to
resist, I roughly groped her breast outside her shirt. She pulled back, her
eyes dark, hooded. We both breathed heavily, and my head spun. I felt drunk off her pheromones. She took my hand and led me off the dance floor through the club’s exit.

I’ve never shied away from challenges. Why should I start now?

Release Tour | Gian (Trassato Crime Family #1) by Lisa Cardiff | #NEW #Crime #Family #RomanticSuspense

Title: GIAN
Series: Trassato Crime Family #1
Author: Lisa Cardiff
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 28, 2016

I only ever had one dream—my name in bright lights for the world to see. And I had a plan to make it all happen.

Move to New York. Find an agent. Work hard. Then with a little luck mixed in with some natural talent, I’d be a Broadway star.

One devastating injury and a broken engagement later, I have nothing to show for my life except an empty bank account and a jaded heart.Desperate to salvage my dreams, I agree to interview for a job with my best friend’s brother, Gian Trassato.

Gian is charming. He’s magnetic. He’s connected to the Trassato Crime Family, and everything I should stay away from, but I don’t have a choice. I need the job. 

Just when I thought I was about to get my life and career back on track, I make one thoughtless mistake. I go back to the club to pick up my purse and witness something Gian’s enemies would kill to keep secret.

Now I’m being sucked deeper and deeper into a terrifying world I don’t understand…

Friends and enemies are interchangeable. Honor and family are everything. And the scariest part of all…I might actually be getting lost in Gian.


"Sexy. Gritty. Passionate. Intense. Gian is going to rock your world."
"I really liked this book. Clubs, Mobsters, drive-bys oh my!"

I wanted to spend the night getting lost in this woman. I wanted to kiss her. Taste her. Adore her. I wanted to put the past and the future in a sealed box and pretend it didn’t exist for a few hours.

I should walk out this door right now, but the longer I looked at her, the more my logic crumbled. I leaned forward, my lips only a whisper away from hers. My brain cells scrambled.

I smelled a hint of jasmine. I saw the tiny gold flecks in her otherwise dark irises. I counted the sprinkle of freckles on her nose. She had seven. It was my new favorite number.

Fuck Tony. He could wait.

“Evie,” I groaned, unable to resist any longer. She was the forbidden fruit, and I needed another taste of her brand of sin. I let my lips glide across hers. Once. Twice. Her eyes drifted closed, and a faint hum slipped through her full lips.

“Gian, what the hell are we doing?”

“I don’t know.” And I didn’t. This was madness.

After spending years practicing law and running a real estate development company with her husband, Lisa decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer and she must confess that inventing characters is so much more fun than writing contracts and legal briefs. A native of Colorado, she lives with her husband and three children in Denver.
